Our trading company in Tokyo requested a 2 minute video introduction for a new product we manufacture for them. I notified Albert Benichou at DeNoise Studios that we had selected him (on the basis of other reviews) late Friday afternoon. I arrived at his studio at 10:00 a.m. on Monday. We did the shoot in just over 90 minutes. He had a proof to me that evening and offered suggestions on how we could vastly improve some of the content using public domain HD video. He edited the segments so each point I made had an appropriate visual. The final was ready, as promised, midday on Tuesday. He got the editable versions to FEDEX for us that afternoon and it will be delivered in Tokyo by 6:00 p.m. tonight, a day early. Albert has a great calmness about him which is extremely helpful because I'm not a professional actor and have to overcome my nervousness and his patience and suggestions made that easier. The piece will be the introduction to a TBS home shopping network broadcast with a hand-off to the program's host. I would have rated DeNoise 5 stars except that Albert didn't "mic" me. He relied on recording the sound from his camera and while the audio quality is understandable, it's not as balanced as it might have been with a lapel mic. Otherwise we are completely satisfied.

Erik was more than professional, if that's even possible! His experience and expertise completely blow me away. I had Erik film a video for my website and social marketing campaign. I'm not an actor and I know I'm not easy to work with in this regard. But Erik's patient and expertise made me look like a movie star. If your looking for an outstanding videographer and editor that can make the ANYONE look like Tom Hanks the Erik is your guy.

We contacted Jim less than a week before a big photo shoot we needed in California Bay area (our original photographer abruptly quit). He was absolutely wonderful. He was professional, very easy to work with, top quality work and offered very diverse selections of photos. He was willing to go above and beyond to ensure we had quality photos and video. When he promptly finished the delivery of the photos, were well organized and easy to find. I could not be more impressed. I would HIGHLY recommend Jim & his company.

Danny was a great partner to me when I started my first foray into video content. Since my website is a small operation, I initially tried to do videos myself, but quickly realized I should probably at least consult a pro. A mutual friend connected me to Danny, and the difference between a trained professional and a novice watching YouTube tutorials (me) became obvious. Danny had a very organized approach to content creation; everything from narratives and shot lists, to lighting and post-production was efficiently and thoughtfully planned out. My videos were coming out faster, but looking better. Super easy to work with, and would love to work with him again.

      Erik and I worked together on a commercial for my old employer, Asian Food Grocer. He and I planned the commercial from the beginning- writing, staging shots, recruiting actors. At every step he was professional, resourceful, and exceptionally creative. The filming of the commercial went smoothly, and what really blew me away were his skills as an editor. And even though it was my project that I came to him with, he put in more hours than I did, and worked far beyond what I ever expected or asked for. I am incredibly happy with his work, and I hope his future projects only get bigger and better

      I'm a filmmaker and editor with over 15 years of experience in creating and cutting a wide range of work from narrative shorts and features to TV pilots, promos, commercials, music videos, and corporate videos among others.

About two years ago I moved from LA, back to the bay area where I grew up. I've also been the the “go-to” producer, director and editor for Capitola Media, LLC in Mill Valley where I’ve been involved in the creation of numerous videos for tech companies such as, HP, CISCO, Towers Watson and Bank of the West and Live 105's 2013 BFD video and among others. I've also made company sizzle reels and PSAs including videos for the California Film Institute and the Wildlife Conservation Network.  I started using Final Cut in 1999 and have a mastery level understanding of it. I transitioned to Adobe CC over a year ago and have a firm understanding of premiere CC and love its native workflow and tight integration with after effects. I also posses a deep technical grasp of codecs and compression for delivery to any medium. I gained great joy from the art of the cut from the creative editing to finishing, color grading and doing audio sweet and mixing.

      I have been fascinated by films, documentaries and music videos all my life. I specialize in short-form video for digital media platforms. I think video that is viewed on TV, the web, smartphone, tablet, or any other device should be much like a piece of candy, short and sweet. I am providing a burst of high-impact flavor that grabs your attention and then disappears, leaving you wanting more.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      What is a videographer and what do they do?

      A videographer professionally films weddings and other events and edits the footage to create film keepsakes or marketing materials for their clients. Wedding videographers record all the key elements of your wedding day, ceremony and reception, and then edit the hours of film during post-production to make a wedding video, social media highlight reels, and any other film features you choose. Wedding videography captures, in live action, your vows, the cake-cutting, the first dance, reception toasts, the decor, the guests and all the details of your day. Many wedding videographers also interview guests (based on an interview list provided by the couple) and incorporate the recorded responses into the wedding video. Event videography typically costs less than wedding videography, as events are shorter with less detail. The national average cost for event videography is $500-$760, while the national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. A videographer usually does not need to be licensed, but it is important to confirm they have insurance and good standing in the business community, as well as good client reviews. A great majority of the work happens during post-production. The pros watch and blend together the hours of footage they took (sometimes from multiple cameras) to capture the story of your wedding day or event.

      How do you choose a wedding videographer?

      A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

      What should you ask your wedding videographer before hiring?

      Finding the perfect wedding videographer doesn’t have to be stressful. Asking a few key questions upfront will help you find the right fit for your big day. Before talking with wedding videographers, research their work online. Look at their websites, business profiles and social media, and see what their finished wedding videos look like. If the style fits what you’re envisioning, it’s time to reach out. During initial contact, make sure you get along with the person. This is important since they’ll be interacting with you and your guests.

      Your first question should be about their availability; there’s no point in going further if they’re booked on your wedding day. Ask to see references if they’re not readily available online. Next, it’s time to talk about money. Ask how they determine rates or what kind of packages they offer. When you settle on a rate and the services you want, make sure to have a written contract that outlines everything, including cost, length of time they film, what post-production will include, and when you can expect to receive the edited project.

      When do you pay your wedding videographer and wedding photographer?

      Most wedding videographers and photographers require a set deposit when you hire them. Wedding season is a busy time and a deposit secures that vendor’s services for your wedding date. It also protects the vendor if the couple changes their mind at the last minute, and they can’t find a new booking and lose work for the day. The deposit may be anywhere from 20 percent to  50 percent of the agreed-upon total price. Always get a written confirmation that your deposit has been received.

      The remainder of the wedding videography and photography bill may be due in the week before to your wedding or on the day of the wedding. Other vendors may require a second payment immediately before the wedding and a third and final payment after the wedding video or photos are delivered. Each vendor has their own policies, so before hiring be sure to read, understand and agree to payment protocols. There is no requirement for tipping wedding videographers or photographers, but if you do want to tip them, the end of the reception is the appropriate time. 

      How much is videography for a wedding?

      Wedding videography is one thing many couples regret not paying for. It may seem like just another expense during wedding planning, but it’s really special to have a moving memory of your big day. The national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. Pricing can vary depending on wedding length, special film features, the amount of editing required, and how many videographers are needed to cover the event. Many videographers offer packages that provide different levels of service. A very simple wedding documentary could be $600 or more, while a full-scale cinematic experience involving multiple videographers could be $2,500 or more. Here’s an example of average package pricing:

      • Package 1: $1,400
        • Footage during and after the ceremony, including highlights requested by the couple.
        • Two cameras with audio equipment.
        • DVD including a 3- or 4-minute edit to a song of the couple’s choice and a 45- to 50-minute raw edit covering the entire event.
        • Recordings of guests’ good wishes to the couple.
      • Package 2: $1,800
        • Includes everything from Package 1, plus an additional videographer (2 total) and aerial videography.  
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
